Ed Sheeran has revealed that it was his wife Cherry Seaborn's idea for him to collaborate with Justin Bieber on their single I Don't Care.

The single appears on Sheeran's latest album, No. 6 Collaborations Project, which sees the 28-year-old star work with a host of artists.

Sheeran married Seaborn in 2018, and he admitted that Bieber's recent marriage to Hailey Baldwin helped to make the singer "the perfect fit" for the track.

"Bieber just got married. I just got married. That song is about the person you love, and kind of just being like, 'F**k this, let's just have fun ourselves'," Sheeran said on YouTube.

"It was actually Cherry's idea, because she was like, 'Oh, why don't you get Bieber? He'd be perfect for this, he just fits it.' I have quite a good relationship with him.

"He's just got one of these voices that works on anything, and he's got personality when he sings."
